AITC-SK's most unique resource yet! Students create a Super-Human to defeat villains that are trying to take over the world. It brings nutrition and food education to the next level for students! Sponsored by Viterra.
Pandemic Food Panic!
Using real-life examples, students examine the impact COVID-19 had and continues to have on our food system. They are presented with a real-world problem and must investigate and propose a solution!

Indigenous Youth Agriculture Program
The agriculture industry will be stronger with the involvement of Indigenous people. And the Indigenous communities will be stronger when they have the opportunities, support, and resources to have more active agriculture activities in their home communities. Our experience in educational programming provides a tremendous opportunity AITC-SK to play a role in planting the seeds for agriculture and STEM for Indigenous youth.

We are in the initial stages of developing this program and will be hiring a Program Coordinator to work with Indigenous communities to help ensure the program is built authentically and respectfully. Partner with AITC-SK to help build this program!
